Really nice article. Yup, that guy really should run AND ride the Goose....



For MOrons who give a rats rear about heritage, check out "The Superior Sound of Classic Racing Bikes" Red Loft Records, 1997. Methinks -and I may be remembering wrong - but these recordings mostly took place at a Historic Bike Race at Assen in the mid 90's. Stereophiles take note: pretty ok recording, but nowhere near state of the art.



Narrated by Phil Read - hey, you get to hear Phil Read interview Phil Read, nudge nudge.



50 cc Honda & Suzuki twins, Kreidler's. 125cc Honda twin, four & five (!!!), 250 NSU Rennmax, Bianchi's, Jawa's, Gilera's, MV's, the mighty Honda 350 6 cyl, Norton Manx (blat!!), BMW sidecar twins...interviews with Ago.



Pretty cool stuff. Worth a listen if the CD is still current and available.

I can't quite put a finger on it etiher...but you are right about the master machinest thing....actually I think that there are a couple of them. One in England has build a Honda 6 - I think it was in Motorcyclist a few yrs ago. The Britbike Mags such as Classic Bike write about these occasionally....



I also vaguely remember that Sammy Miller has more than a few of the various replicas.



Methinks I'd go mad trying to assemble a Guzzi 8 or Honda RC 148 - a 5 cyl 125 cc!!



I'd go even MADDER trying to shim a 14 speed gearbox from a Suzuki 50 cc twin...the mind boggles!
